An application of Morlet wavelets to the analysis of high-impedance fault generated signals is proposed in this paper. With the time-frequency localization characteristics embedded in wavelets, the time and frequency information of a waveform can be presented as a visualized scheme. Different from the fast Fourier transform, the wavelet transform approach is more efficient in monitoring fault signals as time varies. The proposed method has been applied to discriminate the high-impedance faults from the normal switching events, and to examine the faults under various grounds including Portland cement, wet soil and grass. Testing results have demonstrated the practicality and advantages of the proposed method for the applications
